anybody else liked it, but when the president told me, and harry reid told me, they'd work with us to get an outcome out of the super committee, i felt confident we would. unfortunate ly, we didn't. >> we heard you say over and over again you did your job, but how do you pass a bill in this congress, and it's not noon on thursday, and the house is going home the day before the deadline. are you concerned at all about the option of not being there and the house being out in >> i'll be here tomorrow. i'll be at the white house accepting the president's invitation to meet. listen, we laid our cards on the table. we've shown that we can pass a bill to replace the sequester. that's why we did it twice. connell: speaker of the house, john boehner, a day ahead of the automatic spending cuts when they take effect, $85 billion, and the question and answer session there are reporters in washington. dagen: rich edson has more detail on what he heard and put it in perspective for us. rich? >> the house speaker boehner made it clear as have democrats have all morning and both sides all week that there

't attack the president. they attacked nancy pelosi and harry reid. they avoided talking about -- >> but here, they have to go one on one with the president because he's the one that they're fighting with. it is not really harry reid and nancy pelosi leading the charge. >> bill: the other thing they say, we can absorb this. it won't be so bad. $1.2 trillion, that's over ten years. yet the pentagon comes out yesterday with a -- not with a study, they reported that they've already told 800,000 civilian employees you're going to face a furlough if this kicks in. that means they take one day a week off. that's a 20% cut in their pay. again, i'm trying to get in the mindset of republicans who think it is a good idea to let this happen. >> well, even unless -- if you look at the defense spending that we would go back, this would roughly be what the defense department was spending in 2006-2007 when they're waging two wars. maybe the defense department could cut back. the pentagon has never been able to do a full audit. it is risky because the white house put out a memo. i'm sure you s

the leadership in the house and the senate? caller: harry reid of nevada is a gun owner, democratic leader. mitch mcconnell of kentucky, as i recall. -- i believe he declined to talk with us. we did not get an answer at all from john boehner, the house speaker. nancy pelosi does not own a gun. host: what about the chairman of the house judiciary and senate judiciary committees? the legislation is going to go to them. caller: that is one of the most interesting ones. senator leahy is a gun owner, but he is also a very strong advocate for gun control. he will be one of the key points in the debate -- he will be delivering one of the key points in the debate. their committees are likely to be the first out the door with legislation. there will be interesting things coming from some unlikely he, coming from vermont, who lives in a state where gun ownership is not all that unusual. it will be interesting to see if he can thread the needle between a healthy respect for guns and a healthy concern for guns and gun safety. i think that he will be a very interesting player to watch. host: let me conclude b

reid yesterday filed a motion to limit debate and force vote on the hagel nomination. harry reid said today, though, that republicans are mounting a full-scale filibuster of the hagel nomination. he said that there's never been a filibuster of a secretary of defense in the country's history. discussion on the nomination continues. senator leahy on the senate floor now and that is live on c-span2. also coming up live on booktv.org later today at 7:00 p.m. eastern, stephen hess who wrote "whatever happened to the washington reporters: 1978-2012." he interviewed journalist who is were covered the federal government and washington and 30 years later talked to 283 of those to find out where things went on in their career and the fields they covered. that discussion with stephen hess gets under way at 7:00 and that's at booktv.org. >> we have a habit in this country, if i may say, now of glossing over presidents. we decided, some people, that they're balancedying -- bald eagles and they have to be treated as symbols of the country. what that means, though, is you have -- you have a smoothin

but surely deteriorate, the american people will intensify pressure on harry reid's senate to finally do its job. americans are suffering, shall defense is suffering, the suffering of americans is not in recess during this crisis. congress should not be in recess either. we signed up to do a job and that job is not done. the house must provide leadership and prove we are serious about doing the people's business, and washington is where the people's business is done. given the magnitude of the risk and damage done by sequestration to america on a daily basis, i respectfully request that the house remain in session and do our jobs on each and every work day until sequestration is resolved. the path -- the house has passed numerous sequestration solutions. it is long past time for the senate to wake from its slumber, respond to the clairian call and pass a sequestration solution. mr. speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from new mexico, mr. lujan, for five minutes. mr. lujan: i ask unanimous consent to revise and extend.

. the reason why it was defeated because the majority leader harry reid switched his vote to no so he could bring the vote back up again after the senate comes back from recease. a lot of republican senators were saying that they did not want this choice filibustered. even if they wanted to vote no on his nomination he at least deserves an up down vote in order to be approved. the republicans decided to use this vote as a way to extract more information from the white house on issues like the attack in benghazi so they passed hagel when they come back. the way you're looking at it, to me, it is efforts to delaying the inevitable. chuck hagel will be confirmed as the secretary of defense. he just has to wait a couple of days. you're going to confirm himny way and it is just another delay in what the senate is trying to to do. host: harry reid set a new vote in 11 days. what do republicans want to see in the meantime? guest: well, they say they would like answers, again, from the white house, more details about what the president did and did not do in the terrorist attack in libya. the white

. the senate has not budgeted anything. they have not come up with a budget plan. harry reid and the democrats. they want to put blame on the tim -- put blame all the time, puts the blame on them. our deficit now is 1.5 trillion dollars. it's three times the amount. if we don't start cutting now and worrying about our country, we will not have a debate anymore, we will not have a country left. all these geniuses. let's start cutting fraud of all these illegals collecting all fair and food stamps in my state. let's start cutting that. there are many things we can cut. but nobody wants to do anything. we're going to go down with the ship. host: on twiter -- we already have read these. i apologize. if you would like to continue the conversation on sequestration, you can go to our facebook page. there is a lively conversation going on. that will continue throughout the day. a couple more articles before we get to some of our gas segments. obama chooses and environmentalists executive for the interior. there's a picture of president obama and sally jewell, nominated to be secretary of the interior.

, sit down with harry reid and urge the senate democrats to take action. the president says this is a bad idea, but yet he's not put forward an alternative idea. the republicans in the house have twice taken action, twice passed legislation. the first time 300 days ago. what we need is for the president to stop using this as an excuse to raise taxes and turn it into an opportunity to start saving taxpayer dollars, start spending money more wisely. the american people, moms, dads, seniors, college students, children, they shouldn't be forced to lose their jobs or lose the opportunities that this country has to offer. it's time to get serious about the spending, and we need the president to lead and get off the campaign trail. >> a proud kansan by the name of william allen white once said something to the effect that the truth will always come out as the facts are fairly and honestly on display. so let's review the facts. the facts are the sequester was the president's idea. it's a fact the house has twice passed legislation to replace the sequester with smarter cuts and refor
